Each year, Philanthropy Forward brings philanthropy practitioners, thought leaders and community members together to connect, learn and build skills to advance the philanthropic sector in Ohio. This year, we will gather September 23 – 25 in Cincinnati for deep and engaged learning as a community of funders. Over three days, we will create space for foundational skill development, examine trends and practices impacting our sector and build the capacity of our attendees while cultivating the network of Philanthropy Ohio. Through thought-provoking plenary sessions, immersive site visits and timely concurrent sessions, this is a convening that you can’t afford to miss.
